For God so loved...

We often think about how Jesus loves us.

But do we think about how the Father loves us?

John 3:16; “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

The Father loved us so much, that He gave His only Son....
Not only to live for us... but to die for us.

Matt 26:39; And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.”

It was the Father's will for Jesus to die for us. Of course Jesus loves us, I'm not denying that at all.
But it was the Father's plan.

In Matt 27:46; and Mark 15:34; Jesus asks the Father... "why have you forsaken me".
Many believe the Father looked away from Jesus at that moment that He took our sins upon Himself.

Of course Jesus did not remain dead nor forsaken. God the Father raised Him up from the dead.
I am amazed at how far the Father would go to save us.

Would you give your 'only' son up to save a bunch of people that don't even acknowledge you.
How about for just those that do?

Greetings,

good question.
I am reminded of when the LORD provided a lamb. (Abraham and Issac)
I have often pondered over what you are saying. It is moments like them that the Word gets an S on it and becomes a Sword and cuts deep, not wounding but somehow purifying or separating?

If we could and would only consider what you have written @B-A-C more often and more fully, not putting it aside from hearing someone talk about it, but letting the Spirit minister to us, we might find that our every day life would be more as we tend to want it to be, and our walk would be more consistent with the walk we are called to.

Thanks for bring this up.

Bless you ....><>
